Over 300 young adults have received bursaries to support their pursuit of post secondary education. This is just remarkable, and the stories by those who have benefited are truly amazing and inspiring.
Mack and Christi in this photo are two former recipients and they shared their stories with us at the event…Mack in a formal presentation from the podium and Christi in a casual way after dinner.
Minds in Motion and the Justin Eves Foundation truly make a difference in the lives of aspiring young adults. I encourage you to take a look at their website…you might decide that this is a place where you can help make a difference in your community.

Jason Blake is working hard and it is paying off. He is the Molson Cup winner for both January and February and as the winner presents the “On Ice Molson Cup Donation” to selected charities.
The charity receiving the $1,000.00 in January was Special Olympics and February featured The Justin Eves Foundation.

I was introduced to the Justin Eves Foundation early in my career here in Government Affairs and have seen how The “Minds In Motion Awards” impact our students with learning disabilities. If it were not for the Foundation, many students would never realize their true potential and experience post secondary education. This award helps offset the cost of tutors, note takers, special software and other accommodations that may be required by the student. For more information on this great cause visit the website at www.justinevesfoundation.com.
March is around the corner, maybe Jason will have a Molson Cup hat trick!!!
Have a great day, Carole

The Justin Eves Foundation is very dear to my heart; Molson has been there to support this foundation from the beginning. The Eves Family formed this foundation in Memory of Justin, they are dedicated to assisting young people with learning disabilities, so that they too may have the same opportunity to overcome barriers to success. I attended the 13th Annual Justin Eves Foundation Charity Tournament at Rattlesnake Point on Monday and was able to catch a glimpse of all of the people who have helped realize dreams and I have to wonder if they really know how much the funding from the Foundation means to each of the recipients.
I was very fortunate to meet and chat with Emma Lashbrook, shown in the pictures above, as she is the keynote speaker. I like Emma instantly and it only takes a moment to realize the struggle which has lead to her determination to succeed at McMaster. My congratulations Emma, you are an inspiration. Please keep in touch.
